I see trading Orakpo as a small step back for the defense and the addition of a Luck/Bradford as the possibility of a leap forward for the offense. It really seems that it is easier to find quality pass rushers than QBs.

If you don't have a QB you have nothing! I will drive Rak to the airport...

Re: I See QB Rumors (2012 QB Thread: The Sixth Sense)

Smootsmack provided an excellent summary here.

My sense of all this is that the Shanahans recognize that they need to upgrade the QB position on the team and they are looking at various ways to achieve that end.

They seem to have focused attention on Luck and Bradford. That is good news because it shows they have "good taste in QBs" - - which might have been in doubt to some degree after the gushingly positive remarks about John Beck 6 months ago. But it is going to take a bit of doing for them to wrestle one of them away from the teams at the top of the draft. To their credit, they are looking at ways to get that done... This means that they are willing to consider parting with an excellent young talent - - Orakpo - - to get this done. And that ought to be a lesson for folks here; when a team wants to go after a prime player or a prime draft pick, it will not do to think about offering only your team's marginal players and/or some low round picks.

At the same time, they are looking at what they might do if all of the dancing that is going on behind the scenes now does not amount to anything real. That is good too because an upgrade at QB is essential so they have to have some plan in place just in case they do not get one of the guys they covet most.

In an different thread, I said that I would not be surprised to see them sign a good-but-not-great free agent along with a developmental QB in a later round. And by the way, going that route would not offend me even a little bit. I believe that with time to evolve their games, both Russell Wilson and Kellen Moore can play QB in the NFL...

That's excellent...thanks for the chuckle NM! Admittedly I was never a fan of MS. I think of all SB winning coaches in the last two or three decades his are the luckiest, borne of perfect circumstances if you will, rather than his ability, talent, intelligence etc etc.

Also watching the playoffs makes it painfully obvious how bad this team is right now. We're years away from being competitive, assuming we find "the" coach after Mike's done stroking his ego with Danny's money and our beloved team.

Yeah I can see that MS hasn't done a lot to win over his detractors, especially with his handling of the QB position.

I had heard that a deal was imminent - - but I heard that multiple times over the last week. I have given up on timing this out.

So teams can announce a trade before the new league year begins?

Re: I See QB Rumors (2012 QB Thread: The Sixth Sense)

At this point, I'd almost rather keep our picks and draft from there.

I agree. I don't think any trades can happen, even trading straight draft picks, before the league year begins

Re: I See QB Rumors (2012 QB Thread: The Sixth Sense)

If those scenerios get us Andrew Luck, I'm all for it.

I wouldn't mind Bradford here, but if it's going to take the #6 and Brian Orakpo, then I'm not a fan.

I dont mind if we need to trade Orakpo to get our QB...but giving up the 6th and Orakpo for Bradford seems to be a little much unless we're getting an additional pick somewhere....

And I heard that the Patriots are talking about a trade that sends Brady to the Redskins..

Man, no disrespect (at all), but how on earth do you know this? I mean, really??
